Microsoft forms not triggering flow (power automate) 12.7.2020 - now

Form submissions are not triggering Flow (Power Automate).

 

This issue happened on 12/3/2020, and was fixed by @YashPatel. It happened again, with intermittent outage starting on 12/7/2020.

 

I'm spinning off a new topic from here https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/I-Found-A-Bug/Microsoft-forms-not-triggering-flow/td-p/761805/pa... for visibility. 

 

Our company relies on Flow triggered from the Forms for ticket entry into AzureDevops, and this outage significantly affects our operations.

Hi all,
The Forms engineering team will perform a deployment to mitigate this issue tonight. Once the deployment is complete, the existing Forms will start working. 

If your Form submissions require immediate processing, do Save As on existing Form and create a duplicate Form. Then, point the existing Power Automate flow to the newly created Form. 
 
For users with missed Forms responses, here is one possible way to processes these responses:
1. Duplicate the original flow;
2. Replace the trigger with "Manually trigger a flow", add a number input;
3. In "Get response details" action, replace the field in "ResponseId" with the number input of above trigger, and click "Save".
4. Then click "Run". In the "ResponseId" field, you can enter the ID of the responses which didn't trigger original flow.
5. The response ID can be found on form's "Responses" page, via exported Excel, or click "View results" button.

We are observing the same issue from our. We have a flow which was triggered fine for 1750 times and since yesterday it doesn't run when a form is submitted. I've tried to save a copy, run the flow in test mode and submit a form while in test mode, but nothing is happening. Asyou can see in the raw data, there are submissions, which are made today through this form, but they didn't trigger the flow.

 

In addition to that, the records in yellow show that once the form has been moved from individual to Group form, it has overwritten the IDs of the records, removing the first 10 submissions, which were deleted when the form was created back then while it was still private. I don't think this should work like that. The form ID has to be unique regardless if you move it from one user to group form. Thanks for looking into it.

Is this option only for O365 account admins? 
I'm not an admin, as we are a very large organization.
